About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I like to think of myself as a resource for everything pets for my clients. I am a former Veterinary Nurse, professional positive reinforcement Dog Trainer, a Certified Master Pet CPR & First Aid Instructor and have a new Online Educational portal coming soon! I love to make people laugh and I incorporate fun and laughter in to all my seminars and classes!! I have very direct approach to dog training and although I am always polite and respectful with my clients, I make sure that I get the point across so that you get results! We learn a lot in every workshop or private session I teach and I make sure you feel you got way more value for your money!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I get to share my knowledge with other like-minded individuals who are as crazy about their pets as I am! I educate dogs, but I train their parents!

    Terrific experience for our dog and our family
    The training was not only a terrific education for our pup, but for our family as well. We loved how our kids were invited into the process and were amazed at how quickly our dog was able to learn new behaviors!

    Beth is great!
    We had a new puppy mill rescue dog who had never been socialized. We couldn't do anything with him, he was so afraid of everything. Beth came to our house and showed us how to work with him. He made remarkable improvements in just a few sessions.

    Beth is the best! I've learned much more than my dog has!
    I adopted my pit/staffie without knowing her full story...but soon found out that her timidness and reactiveness were WAY more than I could handle. I was referred to Beth by the vet, it was the best decision I ever made with regards to my dog! I gained a level of patience and understanding I never could have on my own. Beth didn't help train Izzie, she helped train me to deal with her using positive rewards and confidence in my abilities. Her one-on-one and class-training helped Izz and I become best friends forever and I will always be grateful! I call on Beth whenever I need help or a reference. I trust her so much because she KNOWS my dog so well. She is a great trainer of humans with dogs! =)

    Awesome trainer!

    Best In Texas
    Beth has been such a blessing in our home, she has worked with all five of our animals and made such a difference in our lives. She has also trained me on emergency services and CPR, I would recommend her classes to any one with fur babies.

    Great pet educator
    Beth was called to our house to help us with our rescue pit bull. She is a people person but most importantly she is knowledgeable trainer. Her philosophy on training meshed well with my family. She does not implemented dominance strategies which is unlike some other trainors here in the area. We want a family pet not an animal that fears us. I feel confident that with her helpful tips and training we will have the dog of our dreams. Our dog was abused prior to us having him. Already I see a significant improvement. I would strongly recommend her to anyone that has doggy behavior issues.

    Beth ROCKS!!!
    Beth has trained 2 dogs for me and both times I was completely satisfied with the results. After she trained my dogs she trained me and the rest is history. I would highly recommend Beth as a great dog trainer. Bobby Gerber

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Dog Training: Initial contact is made by the client and if they haven't filled out my Training Registration form, I will ask them to do so before scheduling our first session. Once form is submitted, we will agree on a day and time for our initial consultation and discuss any questions/challenges that the client might have prior to our first session. Pricing options and packages are reviewed during this conversation or via email so the client is aware of all the options available to them. All classes & workshops: Customers are always more than welcome to contact me prior to registration if they have any comments or questions. Most students enroll themselves seamlessly through my website and registration site and pay to reserve their seat at that time prior to the workshop, seminar or class.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been a Veterinary Nurse since I was 15 and have worked with animals for over 18 years now through multiple day practices and emergency clinics. I have studied with some amazing behavior and training mentors who have helped me to become the balanced trainer that I am today. I have been a Certified Pet CPR & First Aid Instructor for almost 10 years and have become a Master Instructor through a strenuous process and now certify new Instructors across the country!

Please see website for more details
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I always wanted to be a teacher or a veterinarian when I was growing up... now I basically get to do both - teaching about working with animals!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Men, women and children of all ages, cultures and personality types! More importantly I have worked with almost every breed out there!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I specialize and love working with fearful, anxious or insecure dogs. I love watching their confidence build along with your confidence! Some cases take me a few short weeks and others are an ongoing process, but all cases make vast improvement in the pet's and owner's life!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for a trainer that you get along with, but not a trainer that enables your habits that have gotten you to the place that you are today. My goal with clients is to always develop a newfound relationship with their dog that is based on respect, not fear. I want the dog to WANT to do what you ask of them... not fear what will happen if they don't. It's all based on respect and leadership.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What are my long-term goals with my dog? Am I open to feedback the trainer may give me about my habits? Am I willing to adjust my habits if I can get the results I want? Am I willing to make a hard short-term time and financial commitment for the big results of a much more stress-free life with my pet in the long-term?
